Wrapping columns with cellular PVC trim used to be a fussy job, but the major PVC suppliers are coming out with column wraps that make things a lot easier. Azek’s Column Wrap has three connected panels with press-fit lock seams that, when folded together, wrap around the structural post. The fourth panel then locks into place to create a tight and secure enclosure. The product comes with a smooth or white matte finish in 10-foot lengths and in sizes that fit around 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 posts. Prices range from $90 to $180 per post.
